Emergency drill Emergency drill
Today the students and staff at Otselic Valley Central Schools participated in an unannounced emergency drill that included going to a “hold in place” and then to a “lockdown." The administrative team was joined by the Incident Command Team, representatives from DCMO BOCES, and a NYS Trooper to provide feedback during and after the drill.  Students and staff did well and returned to normal operations in less than 30 minutes.  We will continue to practice emergency drills like this throughout the school year so we can learn from each drill and improve our response.  Thank you for your patience if you were trying to contact the school or enter the building during the drill.  Read More
